While all doors provide some form of security barrier just because a product is marketed as a home security product it does not mean it is. In fact when it comes to home security many doors marketed as "home security screens" fall way short of security industry standards. A point well noted by the National Security Screens Association (NSSA) and the Australian Security Industry Association Limited. So how do you pick a good home security screen door from a bad one? What do you need to look for in a good security screen door? When purchasing a home security screen door there are several features of the door which need to be considered including the materials the door frames are made from grille strength mesh type the number of hinges and the locking devise used.
The grill should be at least 7mm thick and be joined at all joins by welds. A solid grill is only good if it is well secured to the security door frame. A good indicator of strength is to look at whether the grill has been riveted on or welded with welding being the stronger alternative. The final consideration is the home security door lock. A proper home security door lock should have a five pin cylinder or equivalent and be key operated. To add strength to the overall strength of the home security door I recommend a door with a three point lock. The three point home security door lock makes it extremely difficult to rip the door from its hinges while also spreading the load of the force applied by the person attempting to break through the door. Home security screen doors are an important piece of your overall home security system and are your front line defense against would be intruders. If considering home security screens make sure you check all the features of the product as a weakness in one area of construction n can have a significant impact on both your personal safety and the protection of your valuables.
You can also choose retractable or sliding patio screened doors. Some may want to decide on the retractable ones since it instantly retracts if not in use. Others may consider the sliding because it is not easy to open especially if there are little children and pets at home. There are also wood-framed design but they are more pricey compared to aluminum ones. You can purchase these kinds of doors in any hardware stores home improvement stores or even in online stores at a reasonable price. These screen doors are generally created in quality and durable materials such as wood aluminum and stainless steel.
Matching the door to the entryway will make it look like it was designed for that area rather than simply thrown in as an afterthought. Take into account the style color and design of the door and overall entryway where the screen door will be installed. When looking for the perfect one take into account what type of material to use. The frames of screens can be made from a few different materials. Many people prefer metal and vinyl because they are easy to clean and maintain. However some people feel that this option is not as visually pleasing. Some prefer to go with wood frames as they tend to look nicer and add a certain aesthetic value to the entryway and entire home. Figure out the type of viewing style that is desired.
